Hey PG--sorry, never got a chance to apologize for my over-reaction on the "dumb questions" debate the other week...just cranky, touched a nerve kinda thing.

Not to revisit it, but knowing your degree of self reflection, interest in the subject, the one thing that I forgot to mention was an interesting study you might find amusing...it doesn't answer the "question", but does shed light on how complex it is: in the late 80s the push in academic settings toward increasing student participation led many educators to begin providing "credit" for students participating in class. Simplest form was to award "points" for asking questions, etc. By 90s, though, it was revisited: faculty had realized many students "just asked pointless questions" to get credit. So, drum roll: yes, they had to start defining "good questions".

Number one complaint/comment of students in 2000-2010 when told "your questions did not warrant 'participation credit' I am afraid" was: "I thought there were no dumb questions?!"

That of course explains my vested interest/bias in the whole biz, but again, wholeheartedly agree with your pt about asking questions in general (of authority, of this, or that, etc.).

Good chat either way--you know I love that kind of crap.
